Safeguarding Priorities and Themes

During summer 2020 the Safeguarding Children Partnership and the Safeguarding Adults Board conducted surveys to help set the priorities for the period September 2020 to March 2022. In September 2020 the following priorities were agreed:

Southwark Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP):

  • Extra-Familial Harm
  • Mental Health
  • Neglect, including ACEs
  • Domestic Abuse (joint priority with SSAB)

Southwark Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB):

  • Homelessness
  • Managing Complexity
  • Domestic Abuse (joint priority with SSCP)

From April 2022 - March 2023, the SSCP and SSAB will retain these priorities, with a renewed focus on testing effectiveness in these areas.
